Research in the Faculty of Technology

Research in the Faculty of Technology has an international standing and provides diverse, exciting and hugely interdisciplinary areas of study. Strong links with industry ensure research is geared towards real-life challenges, and projects cover subjects as diverse as medical diagnostics, robotics, satellite mapping, home security, 3D television, aircraft manufacturing and safety, mobile communication and alternative energy.

The Faculty consists of three schools: 

The School of Engineering and Sustainable Development| focuses on micro/electronics, energy and sustainable development, imaging technologies, communications, signal processing, water software, mechatronics, mechanical engineering and manufacturing.

The School of Computer Science and Informatics| is concerned with computational intelligence, software technology, satellite remote sensing and computing, transport systems, cyber security and social responsibility.

The Leicester Media School| conducts a broad range of research from production and analysis in video, film, television,audio, music, radio, journalism, and internet through to development of media technologies and their applications.

The Faculty also has a number of Special Interest Groups (SIGs), which act as a catalyst for interdisciplinary research. These include the virtual reality and assisted living SIG and the interactive and media technologies SIG.

A strong performance in the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) has established much of the research undertaken by the Faculty as world-class or internationally excellent, and we will continue to build on this foundation to achieve international recognition for integrating innovative concepts and techniques into real world applications.
